Scarlet Nexus has come to Xbox Game Pass and you can play it right now. The announcement was made during Xbox’s Tokyo Game Show briefing. As part of Xbox Game Pass, Scarlet Nexus launches with support for Xbox Cloud Gaming and can be played on phones and tablets with touch controls.
This is a fairly interesting development as a few weeks before Scarlet Nexus launched in June, rumors suggested that the game would be coming to the subscription service at launch. Bandai Namco swiftly shot down those rumors and that turned out to be true: Scarlet Nexus launched as a full priced release on the platform.
For those who passed on the game, well it turns out they only had to wait a few months. You can now download Scarlet Nexus from the Game Pass library. If you don’t find it in the ‘recently added’ tab for Game Pass, try searching for it in the Xbox Store and you should be able to install it. Game Pass will also be receiving another high profile addition today in the form of Marvel’s Avengers.
Our sister site Sirus Gaming reviewed Scarlet Nexus on PlayStation 4 and contributor Conrad Huang had this to say about the game and had high praise: “Scarlet Nexus is worth getting, especially for those who wish to challenge themselves. The story, animation, gameplay, and setting prove that Scarlet Nexus has what it takes to become a new tipping point for Bandai Namco to outdo other JRPG titles.”
